And officially, the straightest discs are:

Well, officially according to the Inflight matrix.

Straightest 3 Midranges:

Mako3. Total Movement of 4
Mako, TM of 6
Zephyr TM 13

Straightest Fairway Drivers:

Veteran (Hyzer Bomb) TM 18
TL3 TM 20
TL TM 27

Straightest Distance Drivers:

Prometheus TM 33
Boatman TM 41
RESPECTi TM 43

Other mentions in Distance Drivers:
5th FL TM 47
6th DD TM 48
8th Sword TM 51
15th PD TM 59
29th Tesla TM 52
107th Destroyer TM 80


How I got the Total Movement was just adding the total magnitude of LSS and HSS. So a disc with a HSS of -8 and a HSS of 4 would be straighter than one that is -16 and 16. This is a (delusional) way to show which disc should supposedly fly the absolute straightest line at a given speed.

This is different than the "Net" rating as it is an attempt to measure course deviation in flight rather than net course deviation after flight.

I know, this tells you not that much because there are so many variables in a throw. But it is interesting to see how things stacked out on this particular chart.

So who is going to run out and get a TL3 and a Mako3?


Thoughts?

The lack of Comet on this list makes it null and void.

Streets and I don't often see eye to eye. But this is nothin' but troof.

Tangent also, of course. And even though it's OOP, the Zeppelin is laser straight.

Ha, Tangents. Effortless straight line with a Comet or try and kill myself throwing a Tangent hard enough to activate "gyro?"

I will knock it. I threw both discs side by side (with an open mind, mind you) and I felt like the Tangent had to be thrown harder and with less control to kind of achieve a similar line.
